hi mummies, sorry if there's already another thread about this. did a search and nothing came up... k my girl is coming to 19months. she's become constipated lately. around early last month she strained for a couple of days before pooping a really hard and black stool. during the days she strained, she only stained her diapers. i've read that this is a sign of constipation. we've brought her to kkh. dr found that she has a tear just outside her bum. suspected she may have a tear inside also. gave her laxative. a follow up check up, the tears are healed. continued on her laxatives. prescribed to give 2 times a day for 2 weeks then once a day for another week. her poo returned to normal. now after 2 weeks of no laxative, she's getting hard stools again. her diet's been the same since she was 12 months. milk and biscuits/fruits in the morning. introduced corn flakes recently. porridge for lunch and dinner. usually with vegs and some meat/fish/chicken. sometimes she'd have rice with vegetable soup. milk when she naps. biscuits or fruits or yoghurt as snacks. then milk before bed. she'd have at least a tumbler of water throughout the day. i dunno what to do. my hubby keeps on blaming her diet. indirectly blaming me and my mom coz just so happens she gets constiptated when it's my mom's turn to look after her. but her diet has always been the same. should i change her formula? she's been drinking similac stage 3 since she was 12 months.
